given that kx +6y = 1 and 2x + 3y = 1, what should be the value of k so that there will be no solution?
Please answer clearly and explain the solution clearly and easy to understand. Thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Put this into the equation then try to solve simultaneously 4x + 6y = 1 2x + 3y = 1 multiply equation 2 by 2 4x + 6y = 1 4x + 6y = 2 Subtract equation 1 from equation 2 Gives an answer 0=1 So k = 4
